    Ride plate installation

    I just ordered a modified ride plate from Jim for my SHO. Is there anything special I should know about installing it? Is any sealant or thread locker used?

    It's just a bolt on no sealant needed, Some blue lock tight would be a good idea to put on the bolts.

    Well, I made a few passes on the lake last week and hit 67.4 on GPS. I have hit 67+ before with my stock plate but the weather was about 10 degrees cooler so I'm not sure how much of a gain I really have at this point.
